This character stone gîte was originally a working mine building, long before La Chataigneraie was built. It has now undergone a complete refurbishment to make a great little holiday home, full of character!

A perfect cosy base for a couple, it has a double bedroom with en-suite shower room upstairs and open-plan kitchen/living room downstairs. The bedroom offers truly spectacular views across the valley. The kitchen area is small, but well equipped with a dishwasher, 2-ring hob, fridge-freezer and combi-microwave.

It has a colour television and DVD player.

The living room opens directly on to its own private terrace with barbeque, table & chairs and superb views of the gardens, swimming pool and mountains.

The terrace is a sizzling sun-trap whilst the thick stone walls and shutters ensure it remains pleasantly cool and airy indoors.

Guests are, of course, most welcome to make full use of all facilities.
